Manchester United will appoint Jose Mourinho as their new manager according to insider sources. It is believed a deal with the 53-year-old Portuguese was agreed in principle before United’s FA Cup final win against Crystal Palace on Saturday. With United failing to qualify for the Champions League under Louis van Gaal, the Old Trafford hierarchy is thought to have decided a change is required. Mourinho has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea in December. Most people has faulted the manner in which United allowed this news to leak on a day LVG won a trophy.
